Also known as Krishna Tulsi, the purple leaf Tulsi is known for its slightly spicy, peppery flavor with cinnamon undertones. This loose leaf Tulsi also includes branches and stems of the plant, often considered to be beneficial to ones health. The beverage is Caffeine free. Also known as Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum), Tulsi is a sacred plant from India used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Tulsi is considered an ‘elixir of life’.

How does Tulsi work?

"Chemicals in holy basil [Tulsi] are thought to decrease pain and swelling (inflammation). Other chemicals might lower blood sugar in people with diabetes. There is interest in using holy basil seed oil for cancer. Beginning research suggests that the oil can slow progression and improve survival rate in animals with certain types of cancer. Researchers think this benefit may be explained by the oil’s ability to act as an antioxidant." (via WebMD)

Not My Favorite May 19, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Stanford, CA, United States  
Not my favorite, but it's probably just a personal preference, rather than a reflection on the tea itself - it's still worth a try yourself if you're interested.
